Paint the Town Red... And a Ton of Other Colors

Came across this two-minute spot for the Let's Colour Project. It's pretty striking. A towns-worth of people paint all the buildings using just about every color you could think of. The whole thing was shot using time lapse and set to "Go Do" by Jónsi from the Icelandic band, Sigur Rós. (And you were wondering what the music tie-in was.) This is one of those cases where it's impossible to decide whether the visuals or the music make the spot. Take a look.


After posting this I decided to look up the full version of "Go Do." As I was searching it, I was thinking of how to explain Jónsi, and what immediately came to mind was that he's a strange bird. Then I watched the video. The universe is ridiculous.

In any case, it's a fine song. Give it a shot when you can.
